    I had the honor of walking my daughter down the aisle last week, and it meant the world to me.  She originally said she was walking alone, but changed her mind at the rehearsal.  BEST CHRISTMAS PRSENT EVER!

    My father passed when I was young – so I will be asking my moms brother (my uncle). He’s my “godfather”

    @bowsergirl:  my dad gave me a weird look when I said I might have both him and my mother walk me down. He apparently is more traditional than I thought!

    @renwoman: My Mum walked me down the aisle as I’m not close to my Dad, I don’t see much of him either. If my Grandad had still been around there would have been no question in asking him as he helped my Mum bring me up.

    My dad is a minister. I was thinking of having my mom walk me down the aisle and have my dad and FH waiting for me at the altar..

    or I’d want them both walk me down the aisle. I really like @TGold ‘s tradition though

    My dad will be … It’s been a no-brainer and a difficult choice at the same time.

    My thought process is all over the place, so bear with me:
    – It’s traditional, my dad is a traditional guy, I’m his only daughter and I do love and respect him for all he’s done for me. However, he wasn’t present for most of my life … He’s almost always worked out of town and for the first 10 years of my life I saw him on average once a month for a weekend. I know it’s to give me the best life possible, but in all honesty, I sometimes would’ve just preferred him being there for me, you know?
    – My mom raised me pretty much by herself. She had monetary support, yes, but for the day-to-day stuff, it was just her. So with that in mind, I would like it to be my mom. That being said, my mom and I haven’t had the greatest relationship as of late, and it wouldn’t feel right having her just walk me down the aisle when I have such conflicting emotions about our relationship (long story).
    – I know that neither of them want to walk me down together and I think that would be awkward anyway.
    – I’m the only girl in my family and have three brothers. My oldest brother is our emcee and my youngest brother is a groomsman. I’d love for my middle brother to walk me down the aisle, but he wouldn’t want to (he has social anxiety and would much rather watch than participate). He and I are the most similar and share a lot of the same views and thought processes.  
    – Perfect scenario, I would probably walk myself down. I am a strong, confident woman who has built a life separate from my parents. I am giving myself to my fiance, not my parents and not my family.

    Blah. A touchy subject sometimes. Thanks for reading my word vomit 🙂

    My father passed away from cancer when I was 8 (almost 15 years ago) and though my mom has remarried, I can’t imagine anyone else by my side so it will be just her walking me down. She’s been there for it all and we’ll probably be crying hysterically and laughing about it with every step.

    I would like both my biological dad and step-dad to walk me down the aisle. Bio-dad keeps throwing fits everytime it’s brought up but step-dad is very understanding and said that he doesn’t have to walk me down the aisle if it’ll cause me stress/unhappiness with bio-dad. Basically, I told bio-dad to get over it and if he refuses to walk me down the aisle with my step-dad then my step-dad will walk me down by himself.
